We booked an ensuite appartment for two and everything was perfect. It's up to you whether you want to engage with other people there or not. The area is perfect: near lots of shops and restaurants. It is near a subway station as well. The staff are really friendly and they even gave us some tangerines for Christmas! I highly...

Pros: 1) Our flight arrived almost 2 hrs delayed but it was no problem getting in the hosted to wait up for us as we will be arriving past the check in time. 2) Location is great as it's only a few steps away from the airport shuttle Jongno 3-ga stop and the metro (Jongno 3-ga, exit 15). The owners...

I shared a twin ensuite room with my friend. The room size was small but adequate. After putting both of our luggages on the floor and left it open, there is not much space for walking already. Owner was friendly and nice though. If you dont mind small bathroom, you can consider this place because of its great location.

My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights here. It is not modern or fancy, but it is comfortable. I opted for the twin room, as opposed to dorm rooms. Our room had a shared bathroom. The toilet is upstairs so it wasn't convenient if you needed the toilet at night. The bathroom facilities were very average. The breakfast is basic...

Backpacker Mr. Sea is located right next to MC Donalds, Dunkin Donuts, Pizza Hut and other US Franchisings. But also, and this is what I preferred, next to those little booths with original Korean food. Yumm so tasty! There is breakfast provided every morning which contains toast, jam, milk, cereals, tea or coffee. The Hyehwa metro station is close by....

Backpacker Mr. Sea is home away from home, solid basics, no frills and fuss, clean with plenty of heat and hot water. Owners are unusually warm-hearted, with good security and attentive to requests and needs. A large, spunky guard cat comes to life at night. The welcoming, simple breakfast is toast and jam, cereal, cocoa, brewed coffee and green tea...
